Volunteer Opportunities

West Allis is a dynamic and diverse community with many opportunities for residents to "get involved" in activities that enhance the community. Volunteer contributions are a value-added enhancement to City services and provide the volunteer with a unique perspective of City government and non-profit organizations. Volunteers have an opportunity to discover new interests, meet new people, and develop new skills. Assignments can be made available on a long and short term basis depending on the needs of the department and volunteer. Your volunteer services are greatly appreciated.
